Harvard Business Review: New leaders bring unwanted cultural baggage with them


A study co-authored by Dr Yeun Joon Kim, Associate Professor in Organisational Behaviour at Cambridge Judge, on “bottom-up” criticism is featured in HBR’s May-June 2021 print edition. The study found that while leaders are often hired in the hope of incorporating a fresh perspective into an organisation’s existing culture, too often they simply import elements of culture from their previous job regardless of whether they meet the new organisation’s needs.
